Dear Anthem, I am excited to share some good news! Please join me in praising God for providing my visa to go to Italy! I recently traveled to San Francisco to apply for the visa a second time after the first application was denied in early December. This is an important breakthrough — not only does it open the door for me to serve in Italy, but now it sets a new precedent for future Cru missionaries going to San Francisco to apply for Italian visas.
We now have a better understanding of what is needed to meet the strict requirements of the SF Italian consulate. I am grateful to have had help from a lawyer who works with Cru and so thankful for each of you who have been praying. I will have a departure date set soon! ~ Emily Johnson
